Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Pynchon said, "If they get you asking the wrong questions, they don't have to worry about answers." This is a malformed question, like: Have you stopped beating your wife? Yes or No? "natural abortion before implantation occurs at rates estimated by some at 30% to 70%, others as high as 9 of 10. Abortion before the next period are very common, and also those after recognized pregnancy. What nature, of God, has seen fit to arrange, I would be cautious to oppose without great care. This side steps the entire issue of the risk of death and permanent vital organ damage to especially young women or those with various risk factors. And even on demand abortion has causes, societal causes, which it is our responsibility to address.

What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?
